Wisconsin Humane Society receives $50,000
after finding homes for 500 animals
Milwaukee and Saukville, Wis. –
Wisconsin Humane Society officials announced today that local philanthropist Stan Kass has donated $50,000 to the organization because their Milwaukee and Ozaukee shelters found homes for 500 animals in the month of September.
“We’re inspired by the response we’ve received from the community,” said Anne Reed, WHS’s executive director. “Thanks to Stan’s generosity, we were able to find homes for over 500 animals in just 18 days. We’re so grateful to Stan for the gift he’s given to WHS, and the animals and families whose lives he’s touched through this challenge.”
Beginning on September 4, Kass challenged WHS to find homes for 500 animals before the end of the month. WHS reached their goal one week early.
